How to kosher photos or videos on android without application
As you all knew, the Android photo gallery is no more discreet applications, for a third party who will access it, unless your smartphone is locked or secure with a password.
So, if you want to hide photos or videos simply, without installing third-party application, there are two solutions. :
Step 1: Download a file manager like ES file explorer or you can simply use Android default file manager
Step 2: After downloading, open the file manager, click on (…) then on «New»
Step 3: Then create a folder called “.nomedia” in the file manager
Note: Note that the dot (.) Must be placed in front of nomedia. This file is empty, but the system will interpret it in a very specific way: it forces it to hide the photos, videos located in the folder where it is.
Step 4: Move to the directory created .nomedia all photos, videos that you do not want to see in the gallery.
Reminder: No application including the Gallery will be able to display them. Note that they will however be visible in the file manager. So you should preferably create the parent directory in a place not too exposed.
To hide photos, videos in Android without third-party application simply hide the directory containing the images and other content contained therein. This will no longer appear null on your storage medium. The folder itself will not be visible in the file manager unless the “Show hidden folders” option is enabled.
To hide a folder, and therefore the photos and other contents that appear there, it is enough to precede it with a dot (.) Followed by the name of file in question.
